My brother is a nuclear physicist and I feel very uncomfortable challenging him on his assertions concerning nuclear theory and practice. So I basically keep my mouth shut and listen. Many people are this way... ...except when it comes to two topics: Politics and religion. It has often amazed me how quickly one can develop and promote an opinion on any particular religious or political topic and present it with absolute conviction without having a great deal of formal or any other kind of training (or understanding). Opinions formulated around these topics are usually: Informed or Uninformed. -What is interesting is the the informed opinions can change. -More often than not the uninformed ones rarely do.

"Snipet" (pronounced: snipe - it) is not a word.It is a derivative of two words: "Snipe" and "Snippet".

Miriam Webster defines Snipe as: to aim a carping or snide attack, or: to shoot at exposed individuals (as of an enemy's forces) from a usually concealed point of vantage.

Miriam Webster defines Snippet as: : a small part, piece, or thing; especially : a brief quotable passage.

In short, "Snipets" are brief, snide shots at exposed situations from a concealed vantage point.
